  • Placing myself as a tourist I think this place is worth a visit. Especially for those who like strong smells, which can even though only distantly recall on Moroccans in Tangier or Fez. At any time on Saturday, people of every race run through the narrow spaces between the pews, there are the usual idlers leaning against walls to do anything, there are people who are working, there is above all life that life which is often lacking to anemic avenues of the city. Notable historical groceries toward piazza Carlo Emanuele and numerous bugigattoli scattered here and there, United by Chinese traders and African.

  • Quaint and large market almost Central, where you can go hunting for bargains, but the risk of being pickpocketed, especially to the so-called Baloon, is really high. Careful!!

  • I saw this market in its most unusual and interesting: the first afternoon, while people was preparing to clean up the huge mess left: fruit everywhere, junk outcast, a woman going through the ruins in search of some vegetable not too run down. Decadent spectacle.

  • Place of the biggest open market in Europe: "Porta Palazzo". It is open mornings from Monday to Friday and Saturdays all day. You can find areas of meat, cheese, fish, vegetables, etc.
  • You can get all daily stuffs under single roof.
  • Great place to visit. A lots of itens, you can find from lingerie to pastrami.
  • One of the most beautiful and big market in Italy!
  • Massive market not to be missed if you are visiting Turin. As with all crowded markets everywhere you have to be careful with your wallet and purse. Better to just bring a bag for your produce and some cash and wander to your hearts content. In the open air markets there there is a ton of fresh produce with some clothing and miscellaneous objects for great prices. The veggies are available Monday through Friday from 7AM to 14:00 PM and on Saturday from 7 to 19:30. Be sure not to miss the farmers market (Produttori agricoli) just north of the main square where you can get even fresher Piemonte produce and eggs. In the covered buildings you can find the fish/meats cheeses and breads. Go crazy!
